Current project that excites you
2020 has presented us with both challenges and opportunities. One of the things I’m most proud of this year is how our teams here at HP, together with those of our ecosystem of partners and customers, have rallied together to quickly design and produce more than 5 million parts of mission-critical applications. This was essential during the first few months after the pandemic hit and their supply chain experienced disruptions. These mission-critical applications include items such as face masks, face shields, ventilator parts, respirator parts, nasal swabs, and many others. I think this moment provided all of us in the 3D printing industry with a watershed moment to not only showcase the power of 3D printing in enabling distributed manufacturing, but also in truly making a difference and showing compassion through real actions. I’m excited to continue to showcase how technology can really do good to humanity.

Advice for your 20-year-old self
Accept that life is a journey, not a destination. Enjoy the journey. Have a growth mindset, embrace change. Don’t be afraid of failures, as long as you learn and grow from them. And last, think of ways of how you can combine your passion (what you love), with your skills (what you’re good at), and most importantly, your purpose (which is working in an area that is contributing something more to society, instead of just selling products).
